MA Design History & Material Culture (

A challenging Masters programme which provides a platform for analysing the material world in its historic and contemporary contexts. The MA is a taught programme about objects: things you might sit on, drink from or wear; things you might cherish, throw away or never notice; things for special occasions and things you use everyday; things made by machine, things made by hand and things never made; spaces you might visit, inhabit or travel through; ideas about things, things about ideas. This course will change how you think about objects, how they are conceived, designed (or not), produced, interacted with, collected or disposed of. Through seminars and guided research, students are equipped with skills enabling them to conduct research, analyse and write about the material world in its various contexts.
Alongside high profile visiting speakers, the course draws on the wide-ranging academic expertise of faculty members in fields including decorative arts, craft history, costume and textiles studies, graphic design history, architectural history and material culture studies. As well as interacting with studio staff and students, the course benefits from close relationships and joint initiatives with a wide range of museums, cultural institutions and historic properties.
This Masters programme may be completed in 12 months (full time) or 24 Months (part time).
MA DHMC graduates are working in Ireland and abroad in educational roles within the university sector, galleries, museums, government bodies responsible for arts/craft promotion and historic houses.
